Estate issues

Region: Ontario Answer # 4476

If you have sued an individual who dies before the matter comes to trial, it is necessary to obtain a court order to permit the matter to proceed.

If you wish to assert a claim against an individual who has died before you start a court action, it is necessary to sue the estate or executor of the deceased.

If you wish to assert or defend a claim as a beneficiary, or attack or defend the validity of a Will, it could lead to complicated litigation. If you are involved in any of these situations, you should consult a lawyer.
